One more 1620 can be found here in Finland, Kanavuori computer museum (...or cave, computers are stored in militarys old cave...here government is not that excited to support these kind of "hobbies", so that's why computers are not proper display at the moment...) This place is located around 250km away from Helsinki, very near of Jyväskylä. But I'm 110% sure it is not for sale, these guys have same goal as I have; try to preserve Finnish computer history.
Here some crappy phone camera photos their collection, I'll take better with my SLR camera soon as I visit there again.
There is jaw dropping stuff like Zuse, RAMAC, U-Link, Data Saab, GE Bull...also there is another 1800 with Finnish origins!
